SLATINGTON, Pa. -

A Lehigh County woman has learned her fate after admitting to fatally shooting her 19-month-old son.

Holly Pallone learned Wednesday that she faces four to 10 years in state prison.

Pallone, of Slatington, pleaded guilty last month to involuntary manslaughter because she said she wanted to take responsibility for her son's death.

Her family said she was using drugs as she cleaned a gun Oct. 6, when it discharged and hit Anthony Pallone Jr.
